This was a fantastic session on many levels.

As Taylor and I drove up to the AlpenGlow parking lot we encountered thick fog and cloud cover most of the way up the mountain.  All the way up, we wondered if we might break through to clear conditions.

On arrival, there were clouds in the sky but the lighting was exquisite.  The sunlight was perfectly filtered and it complemented Abby's eyes beautifully.

It was about noon when we arrived at the trailhead.  We were first to trudge through the fresh 12" snowfall.  It looked like a moose had tromped around a few hours earlier.  There's nothing like looking back on a trail knowing that you've laid virgin footprints.

I love Alaska.  This is what it is all about for me.

Thanks, Roger.  Great time with you today.
